I love your tavern stuff Jen. I really need to get to work on mine. Upcoming game is coming soon and I cant seem to print and prep fast enough
So your tavern floor is just printed? Any chance you want to share the graphic? Would make a suitable proxy until Curufin makes his tudor tiles.
Thanks Meph Look forward photos and discussion of your game later on.
Regarding the floor, sure here is the file. I could of done a better job piecing the floor together.. did it in Mac OS X "Pages" app. I took a plank texture and cropped a square out of it and did a bunch of copy and pasting and rotating. (Actually it's "Pages" fault.. it's a sucky app and didn't align things with precision.. it messes things up.)
Here's what I mashed together, in full resolution.
Printed a bed model that's been on Thingiverse for a while. I like the detail on it. I printed it flat (rather than on end with supports), and had absolutely no clean up to do. Printing on end, last time, was a nightmare trying to clean it up and ended up throwing it away.

Hmm, that's indeed a tricky one. Of course you lose some details in the sheets when you print it like this, but still it turned out very nice! Maybe next time you could try cutting the bed into 3 pieces, and print the head and foot board seperately.
Why do I lose detail in the sheets when printing like this? I don't really feel I lost any. I printed it as it is sitting now in the photo above. I'm actually very pleased with it And I'm a picky person
erho: Too many minis, not enough time... Am I right?

sgtslag: If we could just do away with this whole "work" thing, and supporting ourselves, financially, and otherwise... Life always seems to get in the way of gaming. AHHH!!!...

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!

sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
